About the program
Here is a brief overview on how our Nutritional Programs work:
Detailed medical anamnesis
General Health fact sheet
List of specific medical analysis
General nutritional counselling
Personalized nutritional plan
(according to the medical analysis'
results and complete food diary)
Weekly follow-up starting point
Depending on the complexity of the case and on the counselling pack you have chosen, you will attend additional weekly sessions.
The program includes 12 consultations of 30 minutes each.
Program's availability: 3 months (1 consultation every week).
We always recommend grouping the first 3-4 consultations into one initial session, to ensure that all theoretical knowledge is well understood and delivered to you as a whole.
To give you a little more perspective on our working ethic:
- in the first consulting sessions we discuss the theory, in order to have a common language in collaboration with Dr. Olivia
- after that, you will receive recommendations for the plant remedies (with the schedule and recipe for breakfast)
- we create a shopping list in your area
- we email you the recipes for lunch and dinner
- then we begin the actual implementation of the new diet, with weekly follow-up
Please see the FAQS section below, for further clarification.
• poor quality sleep: if your body is in a state of constant stress during the day, you practically force it to maintain the same high levels of stress hormones during the night - coupled with stimulants like coffee, energy drinks or Cola, you can create quite a messy situation in your hormone biochemistry.
• fatigue: a general state of tiredness and low energy levels in the body can be due to a chronic disfunction of the adrenal glands, commonly known as adrenal fatigue.
• cravings & weight gain: cravings for salty foods, especially in the evening, are also found in adrenal fatigue, but can also be a sign of thyroid imbalance (usually hypothyroidism).
• thin, breakable hair: also a sign of hypothyroidism, the health of the single hairs on your scalp is strongly related to your daily nutritional choices and stress levels.
• hyperandrogenism: acne, seborrhoea, hair loss, increased body/facial hair (hirsutism) are all symptoms of androgen hormones in excess.
• autoimmune component: (micro) polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis or autoimmune thyroiditis, to name just a few, can all be improved easily by using Superfoods Nutrition and, of course, by making an outstanding & permanent lifestyle change.
Frequently Asked Questions
01. Why do I need theoretical information about my nutrition?
This theoretical information will literally change your life.
It will help you become aware of how your body works, what it needs to function properly and you will be amazed on how easy it is to feed yourself the best food on the planet: the SUPERFOODS!
It is important to understand that the theoretical body of knowledge I offer to my patients and clients is information you receive 'FOR LIFE'.
That means that you make 1 investment and receive ALL the necessary tools & guidance to start a new, healthier & happier life, while being carefully guided along the way.
You will be able to 'speak the same language' with your doctor, so that the steps you take together are all in the same direction and you don't get all confused. The target is to get you up & running as soon as possible + teach you how to keep your health in your own hands (except for, of course, acute medical emergencies).
Please make sure to read this consulting room's policy in full, for a better understanding of your rights and duties as a patient.
In order to receive the medical recommendation for the therapeutical plant remedy (superfood-boosted drinks for breakfast), you have to go through all the theoretical steps, to ensure that your overall daily meal plan is sustainable for the remedy proposal and that you make the most out of this superfoods program. (excerpt from The SFD's consulting room policy)
02. When do I receive my personalized meal plan?
The personalized meal plan is a result of 'screening' your medical history (rigorous anamnesis with the Dr + relevant analysis results), your current nutritional preferences (the weekly food diary) and your personal choice in matter of nutritional trajectory: you can choose between omnivore, (ovo-lacto) vegetarian, piscivore, vegan or raw-vegan. Or we can combine them so that the meal plan fits your needs perfectly.
You will usually receive your personalized meal plan after 3-4 introductory sessions of counselling with the Dr.
03. Why are medical analysis & investigations necessary?
Dr Olivia can only guarantee results when you have gone through all the steps of the nutritional program - this is also the reason why you are being asked for detailed blood samples & medical investigations, that show exactly what your organism is lacking and what medical problems are involved, so that the Dr can treat them all at once and, this way, get closer to the positive end-result.
04. Do you work with the main-stream diets (for example: Dukan/Atkins/Paleo/Keto)?
The Superfood Doctor's nutritional approach has nothing to do with the main-stream diets. We are not focusing on parts of the whole - instead we prefer a holistic overview of our patient's organism and try to keep it as simple & mathematic as possible. So you can always follow the equation and never get lost in the details.
